Universal Setting Jig Lathe Tool Sharpening
When You Should Use The Universal Setting Jig vs. Other Set Up Aids
The purpose of the Universal Setting Jig is to help you reproduce a gouge grind you already have and love. We do this by taking the guesswork out of setting the distance of the pocket arm away from the grinding wheel. And by recording the leg setting.
If you are just looking for a typical gouge grind, you would be better off using one of the other fixed position set up blocks we offer, such as the 4040 or the Original two-piece set of gouge set up blocks.
Most turners employ the Universal Setting Jig to reproduce a non-standard grind on both bowl and spindle gouges. We constantly strive to improve our sharpening aids so we make minor changes to the material or the color of our setting aids. They always function as advertised or better, but the colors may vary over time.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if, you could pick up any HSS lathe gouge you own and reproduce that grind exactly every time? Well now you can and it is easy with the Universal Setting Jig for Lathe Tool Sharpening from Ron Brown’s Best. The universal setting jig does it all. You can reproduce any grind you currently have and love and want to keep. This Jig will also allow you to take a brand-new tool and use the universal setting jig, to begin with the nose angle of your choice; 35°, 40°, 45°, and 50° or anything in between. Includes universal jig only does not include sharpening system OR lathe tool, colors may vary.
